president, but the opposition is calling for a caretaker government and elections. we host a debate. a victory in the campaign against stop and frisk. >> going to the store in coming from the store, they're going to stop you. >> they stop about 90% of the people coming in. >> i don't mind the police being here, but not the harassment. >> new york police are not allowed to routinely stop pedestrians outside private residential buildings in the bronx. all of that and more coming up. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. at least five people have been killed in u.s. drone strike in pakistan earlier today. the strike hit a home in north waziristan. it was at least the seventh u.s. drone strike in less than two weeks. the attack comes as the cia nominee john brennan continues to come under scrutiny for his role in the obama administration's drone warfare overseas. in his remarks at the time, brennan had said there was not a single collateral death in the previous year of drone attacks. his letter qualified his remarks by saying he had no i
of -- by december 2011, there was a number of elections in iraq which was to the good, but iraq had not fully become a democracy in the sense there was not a peaceful transfer of power from the current regime led to another prime minister. that's a true test of a democracy is whether there's not merely an election, and russia has elections, i serve there, but whether there's an election, another candidate wins, and power is handed over to that candidate. iraq is in the at that milestone yet. what we had in december 2011 was a relatively stable iraq, a lot of hopes, but, i think, unfortunately, the situation in iraq has deteriorated politically over the past year, and, also, iraq has been less aligned with american interests and more aligned with actually iranian interests in as far as the serian conflict is concerned. >> host: phone lines open now so feel free. democrats 202-585-3880, and independents, 202-585-3882. let us know if you received in iraq as well, and your thoughts on what's happening now. phone lines open. i want to go back to the political situation in iraq. talk about prime minister
election. but most of them, honestly, were from the republican primaries. come on. very few of the laugh out loud moments from the last election involved president obama himself telling a laugh out loud deadpan joke. but it did happen once. >> i think governor romney maybe hasn't spent enough time looking at how our military works. you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where planes land on them. we have ships that go underwater. nuclear submarines. >> ships that go underwater. after that moment in the third presidential debate last year there was a brief but fascinating flurry of really earnest fact checking about the question of whether or not there really are fewer bayonets in the u.s. military right now. remember? tmz had an exclusive inside scoop on outrage from the bayonet community. "we are not obsolete." in fact, the last famous bayonet charge in american history was in 1951 during the ko
decision in the wake of president obama's re-election. the republican party is divided. that's being isolated and ignored by the right wingers. that's a problem for the gop. that southern dominance may sentence the entire party to irrelevance. >>> conservative ideologues are itching for another fight with president obama, this time saying they may shut down the government altogether or risk a credit catastrophe. could somebody remind these guys who won the election, again. >>> plus, the nra has made its position clear. the answer to gun violence, more guns. we have evidence that posting armed guards everywhere has the exact opposite effect. the latest battle lines as the obama administration moves to curb the availability of assault weapons. >>> let me finish with why this nomination of chuck hagel should be given a solid, solid chance, and this is "hardball," the place for politics, >>> hillary clinton is back at work at the state department. this morning she chaired the weekly meeting of the department's leadership team, and one thing on the agenda will be testifying on capitol hil
, by december of 2011, they're had been a number of elections in iraq, which is to the good, but iraq hadn't fully become a democracy in the sense that it hadn't been a peaceful transfer of power from the current regime led by maliki to another pamela starr. i think that is a true test of democracy is whether there isn't an election and russia has elections as i served there there's another candidate wins and power is handed over to that candidate. iraq hasn't set that milestone yet. so, what we had in december of 2011 was a relatively stable iraq, a lot of hopes, but i think unfortunately the situation in iraq was deteriorated politically over the last year and also iraq has been less aligned with american interests in that more aligned with the irony interest in so far as the search conflict is concerned. >> host: we are taking your calls and questions in this segment, so feel free. the phone lines are open now. republicans, 202-737-0002, democrats, 585-8882. if you served in iraq we want to have your thoughts on what's happening now. phone lines are open. we want to go back to the polit
it was unaware of the pastor's prior stance at the time he was elected. a new study has found up to half of all food worldwide is going to waste. britain's institution of mechanical engineers says at least 1.2 billion of the 4 billion tons of food produced each year is thrown out due to problems with harvesting, transporting and storage, as well as wasteful behavior from sellers and consumers. the report calls food wastage -- the findings come as nations across the globe continue to grapple with soaring food prices. brendan cox of the group save the children said the soaring food costs threaten to cause more unnecessary deaths. >> there is a new normal of the food crisis. and the last year we have seen wheat increased by 25%. already around 3 million children die every year as a result of malnutrition. what could happen next year could make the situation much worse. >> fears of a spike in food prices have run after a long standing drought prompted the obama administration to declare a natural disaster in large parts of the midwest. conditions in the courtroom and we producing states -- kansas,
election because of controversial statements on the israeli reluctance. among the reason for that concern and in some cases outright opposition. seven of the 12 republican members of the armed services committee expressing some opposition with at least three senators already saying they will vote no. senator david fisher saying, i will be a no-vote and on the floor. south carolina senator lindsay gramm calling hegel and antagonistic and in-your-face nomination to all of those who support israel. freshman senator ted crews of texas absolutely unloading while calling him too weak for the job >> it is interesting. the president seems bound and determined to proceed down this path despite the fact that his record is troubling. he has not been a friend, and in my view, the united states should stand unshakeable with the nation of israel, and he is consistently advocating weakness with respect to our enemies, with respect to the nation of iran, he has exposed sanctions, and the job of the secretary of defense is to be a serious, credible strength and a deterrent and, unfortunately, i think weak
parties, no breakup, no pulling away, no clever arrangement before the election in may 2015? you will be industry working together until the day that election is called, on time and on schedule? >> let me take the second of the question first. i've always said, nick has always said, this is a full five your coalition. the public wants us, as nick has just said, to work hard on their behalf right through this parliament to fix the problems that we have inherited and to set out and deliver the long-term plans we've spoken about. for me it is absolutely five your plan, a five your parliament, a five your government. it's about work. it's about delivery, not partisanship. on the first part of your question, i hate to sort of spoil the party, but let me put it like this. we are married, not to each other. we are both happily married. this is a government, not a relationship. it's a government about delivering for people, because of the mess we are left in by the previous government, because of the huge challenges that we face. what we said to people two and half years ago was that we
won the election, wendell wilkie, who he beat, with enough is. they remained friends. wilkie said to the president, why do you keep that man so close to you. batman being hopkins. wilkie did not like hot cans and roosevelt set coming out, you may be in the south is sunday and you lenders can, but he asks for not need except to serve me. >> now discussion on the growing numbers of women serving in congress and the act. from "washington journal," this is about 40 minutes. >> joining us now, the president of emily's list. thank you for joining us. >> guest: thank you for being here. postreligious had elections. how did women fare? >> guest: this doesn't mandate. this is an election about an historic member of women sworn in to congress last week. i'm filled with pride to see how these women walking in. this election was about women voters and women's issues, some of which i would've preferred not having debate about, but nevertheless, i really think as we move forward, we'll see more and more women stepping up to run. post out as a result, 20 senators, 81 representatives in 2013. the
and haurlting deportation of illegal immigrants just prior to the election. in the wall street journal he explains why republicans must embrace immigration reform. 70 percent of the 12 and a half latino voters cast votes for the president in the last election. quote, i think it's a rhetoric by a handful of voices in minority but loud nonetheless that allowed conservatives are anti hispanic and anti immigration. i don't think there's a lot of concern in this country that will somehow get over run by ph.d.'s and entrepreneurs. marco rubio sees this as a gateway issue for hispanic voters that could lead to migration for the republican parties if successful. if they want to over hall they need to convince big labor to go on board. >>> thanks so much. >> now it is my turn. >> thank you, jennifer. immigration will be the only tough fight ahead. president obama's promise he will tackle gun control in his second term and something that has already drawn fierce criticism. two of the cabinet picks will face confirmation battle. he will have to negotiate on the debt ceiling and see queststration. he
of elections, tried to work out something so we can get the accurate information out to your voters. that is the goal of the election officials, get them all the information they need. one of the most significant problems was unusual reports that were inaccurate that had this ripple effect throughout the county that caused huge problems throughout the election. i urge everyone to start working those relationships out now. get out the information. we have less and less and less information for voters, for media, for everyone. build this relationship now. >> ok. >> i want to take all little personal liberty here. i hope when i get back to work i will not be in trouble keeping but i want to talk about how we treat senior citizens. i often think we are not very comfortable. i know we have occurred stop ballot voting. -- curb ballot voting. we have senior citizens coming into the precinct. walking with canes, holding the hands of their children and great-grandchildren. they wanted to participate. some of the captains would get them out of line, bring them to the front of the line. some p
, joe, is there an element i will pick this fight, i won this election? i will take it to the republicans. >> he won. usual through president gets to have the cabinet he wants. this is the cabinet he wants. this goes back to the cabinet when he put hillary in there. in the first term for secretary of state. hagel told his party no on iraq and tells the president things he doesn't want to hear. the president wants that cabinet. he will get it. >> bret: joe, karl, as always, thank you. soon, we will get a labor nomination added. those hearings will begin. up next, will president obama try a political end-around congress on the debt ceiling? humans. even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else comes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's
in a democracy. meaningful democracy cannot exist when moneyed interests can buy elections and lobby of legislation. for example, 2/3 of americans support -- but in a logical fashion in congress is committed to blocking reform in this area. add to this list, concerted efforts to restrict bargaining rights of unions to deprive people of the right to vote and you appreciate the full measure of the democratic crisis we face. fourth and final issue is the challenge of finding a way to manage the economy and provide a good life for everyone. no solution to the problems of climate destruction can be found, the developed world reducing its level of carbon emissions. these four issues and a quality, corruption, inequality, corruption, crisis of democracy, sustainability fuelled the occupy movement. what we tried to do was explore and analyze the origins and see what can be done to bring our institutions to enlightenment. we also wanted to bring these four issues together into a narrative. we chose to route our narrative in american ideals of freedom and equality. to say that the ideas of fre
and despite the election results, the position that has been taken on the part of house republicans is that we have to do it our way. if we don't, we simply will not pay america's bills. that cannot be a position that is sustainable over time. it's not one that is good for the economy now and it will not be the precedent i want to establish not just for my presidency but for the future. even if it was on the other side. democrats do not like voting for the debt ceiling yet you never saw a situation in which democrats suggested that we would go ahead and all that we did not get our way 100%. that's not how it works. >> on the issue of guns, given how typical it will be, impossible, to get any gun- control measure passed through this congress, what are you willing or able to do using the powers of your presidency to act without congress? i would also like to know what you make of these long lines we're seeing at gun shows and gun stores all around the country? even in connecticut, applications are up since the shooting. >> my understanding of the vice- president will provide a range of steps we
's capital are deals. it's a place created for one thing, for elected people from across this country to come and meet, get to know each other, and find a way to direct the country. the working principle is that we the american people can send people here who can do the job to make things work, to make government of, by and for the people be just that. the movie "lincoln," especially the second half of the movie, the part about winning congressional passage of the 13th amendment to outlaw slavery is about washington doing its job. people get squeezed. they get paid off with jobs. in short, they get worked. go see "lincoln," or go back and watch "recan" and see how things work on the inside. that's "hardball" for now, thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz start right now. >> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the nra wants a assault weapons ban off the table. the white house disagrees. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i do not think there is going to be a ban on so-called assault weapons passed by the congress. >> the nra continues
't going to be done until the next election or until something else changes. this is something that clearly, particularly republicans in the house really want to push. they're going to use every opportunity that they can. we managed to get some of the tax issues taken off the table at the end of last year. that was difficult for a lot of us to watch. but there's still some questions about spending. that's going to come up in the next couple of months. there's appropriations to be done. i imagine that conversation will keep on going. and i was very worried after i first came back to work after the break, because i said, well, what is this going to do for the immigration agenda? having covered this in the past, i know how much energy it takes from members. but i don't think that the members who are going to be the most involved in the fiscal cliff spending kinds of discussions are the same ones who are going to be pushing on immigration. and as long as you have someone in the senate, like majority leader harry reid, who also wants to move forward, i think you're still going to see some action
envisioned a gay when a guy like richard nixon would be elected president. now for the top story tonight. more fallout from the al gore al jazeera situation as you may know. mr. gore has made tens of millions of dollars by selling his failing far left cable network to the anti-americans who run al jazeera out of the persian gulf. some of the people currently working at current tv are said to be angry because they will lose their jobs while mr. gore enriches himself. as far as al jazeera is concerned, all you need to know is this. in 2008, that network threw a televised birthday party for a lebanese terrorist. there he is in 1979 he was imprisoned for shooting israeli civilian dead in front of his 4-year-old daughter. then murdering the little girl by bashing her head in with a rifle. he got out of prison for some reason and al jazeera threw him a big party. tell vifsed it. i'm not sure whether al gore was invited. i'm with us now fox news anchor geraldo rivera who has his own al gore story. you know this terrorist as well. you talked to him. >> i do. i interviewed him in prison a year af
not the most easy one. >> the new conservative dominance of policy thinking ended when barack obama was elected president. but today was the day that the obama administration made the single biggest play to define what comes next. what is t next. today, he nominated chuck hagel, in doing, he nominated the first vietnam veteran. >> he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that is something we only do when it is absolutely necessary. my frame of reference, he has said, is geared to the guy at the bottom who is doing the fighting and the dying. with chuck, our troops will always know just like sergeant hagel was there for his own brother, secretary hagel will be there for you. and finally, chuck represents the bipartisan tradition that we need more of in washington. for his independence, and commitment to consensus, he has earned the respect of national security and military leaders, republicans and democrats, including me. >> hagel will be the third republican secretary of defense appointed by the last two democratic presidents. william cohen, and bob ga
into the wrong hands. >> john: giffords and kelly have launched a new initiative that will encourage elected officials to stand up for solutions to prevent gun violence and protect responsible gun ownership by communicating directly with the constituents that elect them. now, another group mayors against illegal guns has marked the anniversary of the tucson tragedy with this ad. >> my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? >> john: a man who's no stranger to gun violence, retired general mcchrystal told msnbc today he wants something done to curb the epidemics of shootings. >> i think serious action is necessary. sometimes we talk about very limited actions on the edges. >> can it be done? >> john: meanwhile, vice president joe biden is meeting with groups including the nra this week as part of president obama's task force to find solutions to the epidemic. the nra said it's "sending a rep to see what they have to say." my, that's big of t
in the book about this a little. if senator kennedy had been alive, he was so critical to the election of president obama. his endorsement in the pivotal period with the turbulence in turmoil early after south carolina, i think he would have been important inside the system as a push towards something bigger and would have pushed to have more connection to outside the beltway. obama it is now traveling on the country. he is forced to because of the election. if you sit inside the beltway too long and get in the backroom deals -- >> even movements can be cloistered. i remember a dinner during the george w. bush administration in southern california. it was norman lear and his wife, larry david, bob scheer. they were sitting around w eeping in their expensive soup about the fact that we were living in hell. rupert murdoch on the media. george bush was president. norman lear had his pulse on american culture for 30 years. why cannot figure out how to deal -- deliver a message that is important and happening? >> that is important. we can find messages that speak to people where they are. t
. and we just had an election. and elections have consequences, alex. and i think the congressman is absolutely right that we are now drifting toward a parliamentary system. but we don't have a parliamentary system. we have a different system. and in our system the results of the election are meaningful. and the results of this election should suggest to democrats and republicans that the president, unless there is some egregious problem, deserves to have his own choices in government. >> alex, let me just say, the senate has the responsibility to advise and consent. and given the filibuster rules you have to find five republicans, and he'll find out quickly who his friends are. people forget that this election, the republicans held the house. although institutionally they have a majority there, given voting rights and the way the districts are created, the president's got to come to grips with that and somehow both sides are going to find their way out of this. it's going to be just two years of being in the ring, exchanging punches. >> but ultimately, jonathan, your take on chuc
fundamental reforms are possible but the president made this a defining issue in the election. to passe was going preserver medicare -- it was unrealistic to expect this would be front and center during the fiscal cliff negotiations. >> the president says he does not favor changing medicare but on the other hand, he says he favors increasing use of managed care. does that go to the same place from a different direction? >> as you know, i have a certain track record with premium support which is actually a label that can of an article that henry aaron and i wrote in 1995. it was a very different approach, not moderately different, from what congressman ryan has pursued. i have a lot of sympathy for moving in that direction. in a sensible kind of way and we already have the medicare advantage component of medicare. we are about -- about 1/4 of beneficiaries to to get their benefits through a plan offered by some private entity that agrees to take a risk-adjusted payment to cover medicare desk type benefits for people who enroll in its. . motta fighting that program gradually over a decade
meaningful. it can be done with obama's re-elected and i still have the majority. we can do it with a simple majority at the beginning of the congress. >> welcome back to "the ed show." senate majority leader harry reid promising to pass the filibuster reform at the beginning of the 113th congress. that was on my radio show back in july. well, president obama has been reelected. the democrats held on to a simple majority in the senate. so it's time. so by reid's account, the time for real reform is on january 22nd when the senate votes on the congressional sessions rule book, which is why harry reid is the most important man in american politics right now. senate republicans of the 112th congress used and abused the filibuster as a tool for the minority to prevent the will of the majority. and it's looking like the 113th congress couldn't be any different. just take a look at republican opposition to president obama's recent cabinet nominations. republican senator jeff sessions of alabama issued a statement saying that jack lew must never be secretary of the treasury. sessions has made the r
, long ways to go. wasunited states of america 77th in the world in the percentage of elected women to office. we cannot as an organization take on the whole problem. we believe that we need more women. our piece of the port -- of the puzzle is to elect pro- choice democratic women. the democratic party is for the most part pro-choice. the vast majority of the women we work with our approach was anyway. -- our pro choice anyway. as the organization, when we started women were not running. part of what we do is not so much to choose them and make it happen, but we encourage women to step up and take this on. we need a lot more of that. we do not have enough women running for office in this country. host: why not the republican party? guest: it is not something that women think of doing right away. there is a study done by rutgers a couple of years ago that asks the question of all of these legislatures, women and men. how many times did you need to out -- be asked before you ran? the women had to be asked seven times before they would say yes. and of the men cannot they did not reall
. and perhaps the election of obama what i take from it that's positive i think a lot of people aspire to that. so, you know, this is the time. i think it is a historic opportunity and some philosophers said danger and opportunity tend to come together and we have both right now. >> let's hear your words. >> well, the occupied movement was the first movement in recent history to respond rationally to the new configuration of power, to the corporate today what is called the system of the inverted totalitarianism. it was an understanding of the formal mechanisms of power no longer work to carry out the end incremental or piecemeal reform as they were designed to do. essentially we are trapped in a system of political paralysis. there is an inability on the part of government to respond rationally and it is a constant theme in paul krugman's columns to the problems that beset us whether that is climate change, or whether that is the financial collapse, the mortgage crisis, the chronic underemployment, unemployment, the fact that a million people a year go bankrupt because they can't pay their med
. these guys used hawks, they elect hawks to take over their government and they are hardliners who will not bend when it comes to the palestinians or other middle eastern countries. we need someone to let them know that it is time to make a change in how they relate to the countries around them so that we can have peace in the middle east. there will not be a way as long as they consistently say that they will retaliate against anything that happens. host: two phone calls about israel -- this is "the baltimore sun" -- we will hear from joyce in lincoln, neb., a republican caller -- caller: i am very interested in the former senator chuck hagel getting in. i had an opportunity to work closely with him and another congressman in lincoln, neb. in the gulf war and the last war. one thing the former senator said that caught my attention was that he is not a clock, if he is an owl. i think read where -- i think we really need a neutral position to look at this situation and get us out of the political arena. i watched a program earlier on c-span and it was all men from the different coll
in this country. he promised before the election board that after the election you start to do something. he has this whole public-relations -- relation operation financed to a mere blumberg of new york that was ready to swing into action. what newtown gave him was an excuse to do what they wanted to do for some time, which is to launch a full breath attack on the second amendment, and that is what they're doing door regardless of what the president claims. you know, lou, we had a representative at the meeting with vice-president biden. before those meetings everyone was sure that we, the administration, enter these with an open mind. we got to the meeting, and one of the first things the vice-president said was he in the president had very strong feelings about firearms that are going to proceed regardless of what anyone else thought. they stated their view. we knew what it would be. the problem was that these meetings or asking the wrong question. they were saying, what can we do about guns when they should have been saying to what can we do to protect our children. that is a very different qu
